Making Waves: The People and Places of Iowa Broadcasting
Tuesday February 26, 2019 at 10 am

 Join us Tuesday February 26th at 10 a.m. in the K.C. Hall across from the library as as Humanities Iowa’s Jeff Stein presents “Making Waves: The People and Places of Iowa Broadcasting”. Stein explores the history of radio and television in Iowa and discusses the impact it made on the rest of the country.

Radio and television exploded onto the scene in the 20th century and completely changed our lives. Today, we can hardly imagine a day without broadcasting. The development of radio and TV in Iowa was groundbreaking, and became the model followed by the rest of America. In his presentation “Making Waves: The People and Places of Iowa Broadcasting”, based on his book by the same name, broadcaster and educator Jeff Stein takes us back to the earliest days of both radio and television, highlighted by original broadcasts, photos and memorabilia.
